Hour Homes & Brookstone Homes

Creating Dream Homes For Families since 1988

Since our founding in 1988, Hour Homes and our sister company, Brookstone Homes (founded 2001), have successfully developed & built in over 37 new home communities. We have proudly delivered 1,825 homes to both Stafford and Spotsylvania Counties!

 

The founder & owner of both companies, Michael J. Stonehill, Sr., along with his four sons (whom are actively involved in both the building and development of the projects/homes) are all residents of Stafford County, & have been for the past 37 years.

 

We have made an indelible mark on this county, developing and building many of the most popular subdivisions in Stafford. Communities such as Stonehill Estates, Devon Green, Poplar Estates, Park Ridge, and more recently communities like The Reserve on Courthouse Road, and Churchill Meadows. Our newest model home is located in Mountain View Estates: 2038 Poplar Rd, Fredericksburg, VA 22406.

 

Being that we exclusively build in Stafford & Spotsylvania Counties, we know this market like the back of our hand. 

We conceive, design, manage, and build communities that are unparalleled in this area, and are proud of our work.

 

We employ a faithful staff of approximately 20 employees, and along with the management team, combine 65 years of

experience in the industry. Our number one goal is building the best communities that Stafford County has to offer! Many of our employees have been with us since the company was founded. In addition to our staff, we have an exclusive list of incredibly talented & locally based subcontractors, who have also been working with us for over 25+ years. We are big enough to get things done, yet small enough to care about you and your family throughout the building process, even to include the time after the sale of your home.

 

Hour Homes is our “value” line of homes & Brookstone Homes is our “luxury” line of homes, with upgraded standard features. Both Brookstone Homes & Hour Homes will build only in the finest locations. Nearly all communities that we build in are planned, engineered, and developed (including road building & utilities) "in-house" by our management team.

 

Our company motto is “We Build Value.” This means that you will receive a quality-built home, in a beautiful community setting, with the best customer service!
